Mail from Denmark

Look what came in the mail yesterday! All the way from Denmark, a gift from my dear friend Dorthe.
I'm sure you all know Dorthe over at Den Lille Lade.  A very sweet and talented Lady.

A beautiful tussi mussi and this lovely heart angel. You can click on the photos to get a larger view.

Isn't the heart angel just adorable? Such a sweet face and lots of personality. Love her. Dorthe makes the most beautiful angels and fairys and also has an etsy store. Go and visit her to see for yourself.
Thank you so much my friend - I will treasure them.
Can you believe 2011 is almost here? Time just flies. I would like to take the opportunity to once again thank you for all your support, lovely comments and your friendship. That means a lot to me.
Also a warm welcome to my new followers. Wishing you all a wonderful , healthy and happy New Year.

Last minute Christmas gift idea

Here is a last minute Chritmas gift I wanted to share with you. It is one of those cheap calendars from the
Dollar Store. Just do a collage over it and voila, you have a nice present for your friends. The image is
from Paper Whimsy. By the end of the year it could be used as a Glue Book.
Are you all done with  your Christmas shopping? Sorry, but I'm running behind visiting you and will try to
catch up tonight. Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for all your lovely comments.
